About This Card

Unlike most rewards cards, with the Tangerine Money-Back Credit, cardholders enjoy an uncommon amount of control over where and how they collect rewards points.

By default, users get 2% back on purchases that fall under the categories of groceries, furniture, restaurants, hotels, gas, drug stores, home improvement, entertainment, public transportation and parking. However, these categories can be changed to better suit the cardholder's individual spending habits. Even purchases that fall outside the selected categories yield rewards points, but at a lower rate (0.5%).

Another unique feature about Tangerine's cashback program is the fact that you can have your extra cash deposited directly into a Tangerine savings account. When you choose this option, you qualify for a third 2% Money-Back category. And Tangerine pays you your cash-back monthly, not annually (typical among the vast majority of credit card providers).   

Normally the fee for balance transfers with the Tangerine Money-Back Credit Card is 3%, but the bank has a promotion that allows new customers to transfer balances from another card and pay only 1.95% in interest for the first six months (though there is a onetime fee: 1% of the transferred amount). The interest on overdue balances and cash advances is a more standard 19.95%. 

Cash fees for cash advances are $3.50 within Canada and $5 if you make an advance outside the country. Dishonoured payment, over-limit, and rush card fees are each $25.
